    i already have a black handgun, now i want to buy a 9mm (or .380) beauty for looks and play, of course it has to shoot well, but very important i want a handgun that's beautiful

    i like the cz 75b high polished stainless steel (i like PCR too but they only make black), that's my prime candidate, but anything shiny SS or chrome i'd like to hear about it. also i have limited budget cant go over 1k, ideally around $500 :p

    thanks!

    I am currently on the hunt for a nice 3rd Generation Smith and Wesson in SS such as the 5906. For $500 you should be able to find one in tip top shape and then with some nice wood grips you can really have a beautiful looking weapon in my opinion.

    Something like this would be a dream for me...

    P.S. - It's stainless so you can always get a polish job done to bring out the shine!

    S&W 952 or Sig 210.

    Short of that, the 5906 is a great gun.

    I'd say, if you want something "beautiful", CZ 75 or variants (my personal liking is the SP01 Shadow), or Beretta 92.

    Prettiest 9 under $1k...

    You just might be able to get a nice, older Browning HP for that.

    I think these two are pretty nice looking: SIG 229 and Witness Elite Match

    Well, I'm a 1911 guy so I picked up a Springfield EMP in 9mm, though it may stretch your budget a bit. (Picture from google images.)

    I'd say the pick you started with, beautiful gun and will shot as good as it looks. Or get a cz 75b and have it hard chromed like this guy did to his sp-01.

    I suggest checking out the Sig P210 Legend. It's awfully pricy, but what a great looking gun. Also, Browning HiPower, 9mm 1911s, and EAA K2s.

    +1 on the Witness Match... VERY beautiful gun. All Sigs are beautiful, too, imo.

    I'd agree with the P226. SIG makes several 226 models that are gorgeous IMO. The P226 Elite Stainless and P226 Equinox are my favorites; and you know they're excellent performers to boot.

    Short of the 226 (and IMHO, it would be short), the CZ75B would make a great runner-up.

    Buy a new Browning Hi Power in blue, and add some Hogue wood grips:

    I went with an epoxy finish for mine because of my high humidity environment, but the blued versions are just downright beautiful. The newest Hi Powers are probably some of the best ever made.

    I vote for the Witness Elite Match too. I just got back from the range with it and it was, as always, a tack driver. That's the gun you pull out when you want to embarrass the guy shooting next to you. At ten yards the guy next to me shooting his plastic 9mm was shooting dinner plate sized groups off hand at ten yards. My Match was shooting silver dollar sized ragged holes off hand. I swear if you do your part you can't miss. And if you don't do your part it will do it for you. And this awesome gun is in your price range too! :D

    CDNN has blue and matte black versions of the BHP right now. $750 for blue, $700 for matte black.

    Another vote for the BHP. I cannot tell you how happy I am with mine and the FEG Copy I have.

    HK P7. I'm not a fan of the nickle finished ones, but that might work if you really want it shiny. Personally I think the blued looks excellent.

    What, no love for the Beretta 92FS Inox ? Put some stunning wood grips on this baby and the WOW factor is there IMO.

    I gotta tell ya though, everything posted here so far is a great choice.
